yes, infact, religon encourages to search the universe to understand it better and it shows the greatness of God. but the scientists are very foolish and say there is not God.

I agree with the first half of that statement. The second half I might have issues with it. If you're speaking medically, then I tend to think those who believe faith will heal all disease may be risking alot, however I also believe that if God has determined your time is up then all the doctors in the world won't save you. Non- medical science I think hinders religion by putting doubt in peoples faces. Those with faith should have faith whatever they read, but just like those who read "DaVinci's Code" took it as fact people can easily be mislead in moments of weakness or times of trials. I think we need both, and like anything good they should both be scrutinized and researched thoroughly before anyone jumps to judgement.

I agree with you that faith does not promise healing of all physical ailments man suffers instead faith offers man hope and sense of joy in times of sufferings and trials. Faith makes man more resilient and becomes a better man amidst the multitude of sufferings and evils in the world. It shape his whole humanity to be more charitable and enduring. It gives man purpose for existence.

Well, as you see, its all about the search and quest for the truth. And both science and religion or philosophy, all of them aim to reach this and understand life from their own perspectinve. In the due course of time, each has developed its own set of framework, which it never crosses. And this is a cause of concern when you distinguish two paths leading to the same goal and then build barriers so ideas cannot cross over. You see, thats wrong. What is needed is a harmonious union of both these extremes as the world sees it today. And this alone can lead you to higher truths.
